    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Grey Group.

    Interview

    Terrible. HR is absolutely terrible and so rude. I had a great interview with an HR recruiter after SHE had reached out to me. We had a phone call and she wanted me to come in THAT week to meet with the team...long story short she NEVER responded to my follow up emails. Like out of common courtesy just let me know if the team went another direction, but don't leave someone hanging after reaching out to them.

    Assistant Account Executive Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Grey Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online in August and a recruiter emailed me in mid-September to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was very brief about my most recent internship experience, why Grey, and an advertising campaign i particularly liked. She informed me that she would be submitting my resume for open positions and 2 weeks later she contacted me to come in to interview with a team. After an interview with 2 of the AE's, I was asked to do a writing sample within 48 hours. The writing sample was relatively straight forward just to see how I thought. I then came in an interviewed with the Account Director and was told I would hear a few days later.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Grey Group (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone conversation for about 30 minutes. I described my past experiences and why I felt that Grey Group was a right fit for me. There was a brief explanation of what I would be doing and then I was asked if I would be interested in interning. I was then told there were no positions available right now for Account Executive but that I would be informed if any openings arose.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Grey Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    A referral got me a phone interview. I then was scheduled for an in person interview and then a second one after the first. The interviews themselves went fine, and went far but after getting to a certain point for 3 different accounts I was never offered the positions even though I was contacted to come in for the various positions multiple times. After the first in person interview for the 3rd account, HR stopped emailing back, which I found to be very rude as I had been in contact with them for a long time.

    Interview

    It was quick and painless. They were very nice to deal with and were open to reaching out if you had any questions. They provide you with someone to work with to get all your paperwork done before start date. Orientation is great too, don't miss it!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Grey Group (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very good. The HR person meets you in the lobby and brings you to the interview room. Then they ask you basic questions to get you talking. However, they are not a part of the interview. The people or person will come into the room at some point and begin speaking with you.
